Shannan Click by Sophia & Mauro

December 14th, 2012 (No Comments)

Shannan Click wears the new Baroque inspired trend in a gorgeous editorial for Vogue Turkey. The gothic mood has been contrasted by the warm colour treatments in the photography and the addition of sunny blue skies. Less fierce and more feminine this way. Love this. Tweet Share

Tom Dixon’s ‘eclectic’ misson

December 13th, 2012 (No Comments)

I’m in love with British design and manufacturing company Tom Dixons’ new ‘Eclectic’ range of gifts and housewares, made from honest materials like copper, marble, cast iron and wood. These weighty pieces are unique and designed to display around the home, most items with function and purpose as well as charm. In an effort to […]

Viktoria Sekrier by Jenny Brough

December 12th, 2012 (No Comments)

I love a shoot every now and then where the photographer has obviously completely surrendered to the styling and just captured it all in it’s full glory. It doesn’t happen that often as the artistic license of a photographer often precedes. This particular editorial, for Gloss in Slovenia, displays really layered,  intentional, and considered styling. […]

Part Five: Jasmine

December 6th, 2012 (No Comments)

83% of women’s and 33% of men’s fragrances contain Jasmine, its so hugely popular. Jasmine is best friends with loads of other flowers. It integrates well amongst other scents in fragrances, so it’s often blended with other favourite white flowers of mine like Tuberose, gardenia and honeysuckle. I can rarely walk past jasmine without stopping […]

Part Four: Rose

December 5th, 2012 (No Comments)

This one’s a bit of a no-brainer, but roses have obviously been used in perfumes for many years. It’s not my favourite  fragrance, but the look and appeal of roses are undeniably gorgeous. Many perfumes contain rose middle notes, popular ones being Rose The One by Dolce & Gabanna, and the  Stella McCartney fragrances mostly […]

Part Three: Lily of The Valley

December 4th, 2012 (No Comments)

The ancient flower: Lily of the Valley is fresh, graceful and sweetly scented. A wonderful plant for shady, moist spots in the garden. The little dark green plant is best suited to cool temperate and cold locations where shade and dampness prevail. It’s little bell shaped flowers look beautiful dangling upside down, and it’s in […]

Part Two: Gardenia

December 3rd, 2012 (No Comments)

I will never tire of the glossy dark green leaves and the gorgeous look of the fragrant Gardenia. My favourite flower. There are over 250 species of Gardenia. It grows best in warmer climates and it flowers in a tubular, spiral style- normally in white or soft yellow. Not loved only for it’s heavenly perfume, […]
